HOW-TO STEPS

  • close formula
    1

    Apply Sexy Hair 450 Blow Out to damp hair and dry with a large round brush, encouraging smoothness and loosening cowlicks and hard parts. Section hair into a top profile, two side profiles and a back profile. Gather the back section into a low side ponytail, then create a large, three-strand braid. Grasp the tip of one braid strand and push upward, creating a knotted chignon.  Pin in place.

    Divide remaining side and top sections into 1-inch subsections. Mist with Sexy Hair 450 Protect. Clamp each subsection at the root with a Sexy Hair Flat Iron, twist the iron once and slowly slide it along the strand, creating a spiral wave.

    Once all hair is curled, direct each side section back and incorporate into the chignon. (Because chignon is already looped, the sections will blend. This technique also saves time since it’s not necessary to curl all of the back sections.) Omit some curls in the top section to frame the face and incorporate the rest into the chignon. Emulsify Sexy Hair Big Boost between fingertips, rub a small amount into the scalp for lift and with the remaining product, pinch curl ends for polish and definition.
